I tend to really dislike playing Turkey, because of the tendancy to get pocketed and have a slow game like that.
I'd almost rather be eliminated early then just spend year after year trying to get a 4th or 5th unit.
I'm having flashbacks to a game that was like that.
Well, yes, but Turkey is also easily defended and can take advatage of its adversaries' weakness when they fight. I've lost a lot of games to Turkey, but I never seem to play it well and get eliminated too easy. I guess patience is a virtue for a Sultan.
